AC wifi is fantastic, 5ghz is important for me as well because my tab and my phone play up when using bluetooth and 2.4 wifi at same time

The chrome extention will (I think) eventually replace the old java pc app. It is so much smoother. Its not the same as the android one as its not android based… but it runs just as well.

All you have to do is install chrome, drag the extention in and then u can create a shortcut to moonlight in the task bar… job done easy.

I have a question about this app and how it works. I have an official Nvidia Shield device, which uses the native streaming app. But I have noticed that the controller input is buggy on it. Games like Dragon's Dogma Arisen do not work on Nvidias app at all. It maps some invisible controller with numbers as buttons.

Moonlight does this as well, but I found a workaround which was launching steam within Moonlight, and then launching the game via big picture mode. The game then acknowledges that the controller is an XBOX controller and works perfectly fine.

Why is it that when I launch Steam in Moonlight, the controller works perfectly fine; but if I launch the game in gamestream (nvidias native app) via steam, it does not work. What's different between the two, and is there a way I can fix the native app?

Is there any plans to support higher resolutions other than 1080p on the PC client?

Moonlight Chrome Test Build (Alpha 2)
Changes from Alpha 1:
- Fixed Esc key kicking the app out of full-screen (press Ctrl-Alt-Shift-Q to quit)
- Fixed sometimes requiring a restart of Chrome for gamepad detection to work
- Added mDNS auto-discovery of PCs

Working:
- Pairing and streaming
- Hardware accelerated video decoding up to 1080p60
- Game controllers (currently limited to those for which Chrome has a built-in mapping, like Xbox and DualShock controllers)
- Keyboard and mouse input
- mDNS auto-discovery of PCs

Not working:
- No feedback when starting a stream - just be patient and wait for the video stream
- (Very) Non-final UI
- A few settings are missing
- Error handling needs work

To install, drag the CRX file into the Extensions (Menu -> More Tools -> Extensions) page of Chrome.

To launch, use Chrome App Launcher, the Extensions page, or just search for Moonlight on your PC and you should see it installed like a normal program.

Yep, Java app will be going away in favor of the Chrome app which has much better streaming performance.

I'm not sure why Moonlight and Shield Hub differ in behavior. You could try toggling the multi-controller checkbox in Shield Hub for that game and see if that makes a difference.

The Chrome app will support 4K streaming on PC soon, as long as your client PC's GPU can decode a 4K 30/60 FPS H.264 video stream. The next alpha should have it, assuming no major issues come up.

My host pc has a 4k tv connected to it so I play gta in 4k no problem. If I leave it on 4k and stream to pc on same lan using chrome app, if I dont change the 4k to 1080 its really jerky. Will this change when you provide 4k support?

Many thanks again for an amazing app

Every time I move (for example streaming Skyrim to my LG G3) parts of the image blur slightly as if it's predicting the decoding for it. Once I stop moving a few milliseconds later everything returns to perfect clarity again. Is there anything at all that I can do to get around this issue? Or is this just how game streaming works in general? I was under the impression the decoding should be taking place between the image streaming & showing on screen, hence the latency of the decoding? Or is that not the case and there is no way around this? I have tried every resolution combination in Moonlight and everything from 10mbps up to the full 100 and although I have no packet loss showing or network error messages at all I still get this issue. Anyway huge thanks for all the work on Moonlight, is the only streaming solution that comes any where near close to enjoyable.


Hi, I know you said you were still suffering problems, but could you please share how you got your lg g3 to stream at 100mps? Thanks in advance....

How does that help? Question was posed to an lg 3g user, like me?

Do you have any relevant info regarding streaming to a g3 at 950 or even 100 as requested?

Thanks
